It appears Doctor Who’s greatest enemy is in fact Sherlock Holmes.

That’s according to BBC News who are today reporting that Steven Moffat’s heavy workload on both Doctor Who and Sherlock is the reason behind Doctor Who’s reduced series in 2012.

Originally this had been dismissed as a joke, their article, however, quotes BBC1 Controller Danny Cohen as saying:

“[Steven Moffat] needs enough time to get [Sherlock] done and then start work on the next series of Doctor Who. So there will be [Doctor Who] episodes, but not as many.”

“There will be some episodes, but there won’t be a full series, so we won’t have a 13-part run,” he told the audience at The Church and Media Conference.

“There’s only so many hours a day he can be awake. The man has to sleep and eat, and he’s got a family.”

“Steven Moffat is the creative driving force behind Doctor Who. He also, rather magically at the same time, created and got to air Sherlock. So we have to get that balance right. There’ll be more episodes again in 2013, for the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. So that’s a big year.”

Update: In response Steven Moffat tweeted: “The scheduling of Dr Who has got NOTHING to with Sherlock. On the plus side THE BBC SPELLED MY NAME RIGHT!!!!”

Frankly? I like Moffat's Sherlock better than I do his brand of DW (aka, "Doctor Potter and the Tardis of Secrets" :P )

More Sherlock for less DW? Hmm. I call that a fair trade at this point... unless DW improves a bit. :thumbsup:

To paraphrase the old expression, "No S**t, (More) Sherlock!" :P

I'm SOOOO kidding. Moffat's DW reign has had some wonderful entries (why I'm always compelled to keep buying the bloody DVDs!), but all-in-all? What can I say? I like the RTD years better. As Woody Allen said in his lame defense of his affairs, "The heart wants what it wants." :blush:

But Moffat will ALWAYS be a TV demi-god with me for his "Sherlock" and his " Jekyll". I love BOTH of those very much, so I shall try to be a bit more forgiving of his hit-and-miss, Candyland version of Doctor Who (and hey, he DID give the world Amy Pond... who can resent that?!? :naughty3dg: ). :lol:
